REPORTS TO: Head of Department
OVERALL PURPOSE OF THE JOB:
Teaching and research in industrial and applied mathematics.
We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Lecturer below the bar in Industrial and Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics. The Department is responsible for teaching mathematics and statistics at all levels across the University, and also has a thriving research programme in applied mathematics and statistics. In December 2015 the department was successful in obtaining an Athena SWAN Bronze award, one of the first departmental awards given in the county, which demonstrates its commitment to addressing gender equality.
The mathematics applications consortium for science and industry (MACSI) is a research centre based in the department which applies mathematics to diverse real-world problems. Recent examples of MACSI projects include the modelling of moisture absorption on a silicon chip, information diffusion on Twitter-like networks, and valve wear in an alumina refinery. MACSI also works closely with research centres within UL, such as the dairy processing technology centre (DPTC), the pharmaceutical manufacturing technology centre (PMTC) and the synthesis and solid state pharmaceutical centre (SSPC). Further application areas of interest to the university are outlined in its strategic plan, Broadening Horizons 2015-19.
Applicants are invited from any area of industrial and applied mathematics including, but not limited to: mathematical modelling, fluid mechanics, complex systems, differential equations, numerical analysis, inverse problems and optimisation. The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree (level 10 NFQ) in a relevant discipline, a track record in research and publication in any area of industrial and applied mathematics and should demonstrate a commitment to teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Experience of working in collaborative and interdisciplinary projects is also desirable, as is an awareness of how their work can impact more broadly on industry and society, and an ability to demonstrate this.
The successful candidate will be required to contribute to the delivery and organisation of teaching their subject within the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to develop a research programme which complements existing research themes within the department in the area(s) of industrial and applied mathematics.
Other relevant duties commensurate with the grade of the post as may be assigned by the Head of the Department.
